I often take this hearty meal-in-one dish to potluck suppers at the community seniors' group my husband and I helped organize. It's delicious for sauerkraut lovers and easy to double for a larger crowd. —Reta Christensen, New Denmark, New Brunswick

"I was intrigued by the short list of ingredients in this easy recipe. Unusual? Yes. Adaptable? Very much so. It was delicious! I made it as others with 28oz fresh chopped tomatoes from my garden, a fresh frying pepper from the garden, and kielbasa instead of ground beef since that's what I had on hand that wasn't frozen.

It was delicious! A great basic recipe that you can substitute what you have on hand. I like that it was satisfying yet light. Can be made more healthy with ground turkey or chicken. Will definitely make again!"
